Kerry manager Peter Keane has moved to dampen expectations following the Kingdom's dominant 4-21 to 0-11 defeat of Galway in their Allianz FL opening round tie in Tralee on Saturday.
Kerry skipper and talisman David Clifford notched 3-06 as the home side ran riot against a Galway side who had no answers for their pace and skill.
“Obviously you are not disappointed, but I wouldn’t pay a blind bit of notice to the result," Keane said afterwards.
"The key thing for us today was to try and get out injury free and hopefully we have come out of it injury free.
“To be ready for three games on three consecutive weekends is a big ask. No question about it I wouldn’t pay any attention to it.
"That result could have gone the other way just as handily. In normal circumstances we would have a game like this behind closed doors as a challenge game with another county."
Meanwhile, Galway manager Padraic Joyce admitted his team had been outplayed and paid tribute to the reigning league champions.
“The lads had put a lot of work in but we didn’t get to the pitch of the game," he said.
"It is very disappointing that we let them in very handily. We were struggling from the get go and we duly lost the game very, very well.
“But we have to give Kerry credit, they were well up for the game. Their movement was fantastic and they scored two goals in the first quarter and they could have got four or five.”
